When I began working at FirstEnergy Stadium in 2005, I never imagined that I would still be there 10 years later. Over ten seasons, I have worked in six different concessions stands, spent two seasons as a seasonal associate, and sold everything from hot dogs and fries to ice cream and funnel cake. I have learned what it takes to keep a sports organization running during both the regular season and the off-season.
The first nine seasons have introduced me to a large group of great people and season ten has been no different. I have seen a lot of the same fans and workers who return every summer and have met new people along the way. This season has already had its share of exciting moments and promises to have more. There have been more adventures in the Upstairs Ice Cream Stand and more special guests to the ballpark including sheep-herding, dog-riding monkeys. With a little over half the season left, I am excited to see what the rest of season ten has to offer. Stay tuned for more confessions from this concessions worker!
